House Democrats go right for the scare tactics in response to Trump budget proposal

May 23, 2017 — Herman Cain

Did you know you will not have anything to eat if the government doesn’t give you something? Did you know there’s no way to get health care if the government doesn’t provide you with insurance? Did you know that you will be thrown into poverty if you’re not the beneficiary of a government welfare program?

Did you know all this? Neither did I. Because it’s all nonsense. But now that President Trump’s full budget proposal is out, House Democrats have jumped right into the scare tactics designed to make you believed you are doomed - doomed! - without Washington’s ever-increasing generosity toward you.

Consider what they are really saying to you just in this one tweet:

Beltway crowd wants us focused on molehills instead of the mountainous problems they’ve created

May 21, 2017 — Herman Cain

This country has very big problems, and none of them – at least not the serious ones – were created by Donald Trump.

Take your pick. The debt, the unfunded entitlement obligations, the messed up health care system, the crime, the cultural disintegration, the tax code . . . the political class gave us these problems over the course of many decades. Whether by neglect or active foolishness, they have imperiled our fiscal stability, our economic vibrancy and even the safety of ordinary people. They’ve also made it harder for us to protect ourselves against external threats.

These problems are mountains. Mountains can be conquered, but it takes someone who is not only willing to climb the mountain but has the strength and the courage to see the challenge through when it gets difficult. Whatever Donald Trump’s faults, he ran for president because he understood the nature of these problems, and he was willing to climb the mountains.

Here’s how to let the president know you have his back

May 20, 2017 — Herman Cain

President Trump is under siege. You’ve already figured that out. Whether it’s from the news media, congressional Democrats, congressional Republicans (!) or disloyal members of his own administration leaking to the press, it’s clear the Beltway establishment is determined to take him down.

He is trying to solve the very real problems this country faces. They don’t want to let him do that. All these firestorms are endangering a very strong agenda that the country needs to see implemented, forcing the White House to deal on a daily basis with the latest bombshell, and to try to figure out who is right under their noses leaking like a faucet to the hostile press while hiding behind their anonymity.

That’s bad, but I think the worst part might be this: When you’re under siege like this, you can start wondering if anyone really has your back. To read the news every day, you’d think no one supports the president. His approval ratings are not good, but that’s more a reflection of the overall chaos going on than a reflection of the actual governing he’s trying to do. Most people don’t even know what that consists of. What they’re disapproving of is the general sense that everything is nuts in Washington.

Trump’s ‘Russia problem’ doesn’t actually exist

May 15, 2017 — Herman Cain

One of the media spins in response to last week’s firing of FBI Director James Comey was that President Trump has just “made his Russia problem worse.”

How’s this?

Well, you see, firing Comey while the Russia investigation is going on would only give rise to further speculation that he had something to hide. It would raise doubts with the public about any claim by a new, Trump-appointed FBI director that there was no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian government to influence the election.

How the persistence movement is defeating the liberal Trump-haters

May 10, 2017 — Herman Cain

The persistence movement toward prosperity is alive and well!

You would not know it from all the media noise about the firing of FBI Director James Comey. Some Republicans and some Democrats applaud the move, and some find it despicable. But no one has noticed how President Trump made the move. Namely, he didn’t tell anybody inside the FBI ahead of time.

As a result, there were none of the leaks that have plagued this administration since it took office.

What exactly is it that Hillary’s resisting?

May 9, 2017 — Herman Cain

Hillary Clinton is still in denial as to why she lost the 2016 presidential election. She and other liberals are also in denial that President Trump and his administration are having a positive impact on this nation. As a result, Hillary has indicated she will be a part of the resistance.

My question is resistance to what?

What don’t they like about a positive tone from the top, business growth, shrinking unemployment, a shrinking federal bureaucracy, enhanced national security, a robust stock market, and coming soon, a robust growing economy?

Republican senators: Don’t let great be the enemy of good

May 8, 2017 — Herman Cain

The Democrats and the liberal media are still pushing their dishonest rhetoric about what’s not in the Republicans’ American Health Care Act, and the damage it’s supposedly going to do to people. All lies! As I wrote on Sunday, pre-existing conditions are taken care of through a high-risk pool funded to the tune of $130 billion over 10 years. But the liberal media and Democrats keep pushing the lie that they are not covered.

Scare tactics 101!

Nancy Pelosi says the Republican AHCA is a tax break for the rich at the expense of poor people. Another lie! Class warfare scare tactics 101! Pelosi’s Senate counterpart Chuck Schumer says they will use every procedural trick in the book to stop the AHCA.

This pre-existing conditions business is a total scam

May 7, 2017 — Herman Cain

The vote in the House was close, but the American Health Care Act passed 217-213. Now it’s on to the Senate to see if we can get a bill that a) can pass; and b) can be worked out with the House’s version in conference committee.

It won’t be easy, but it can be done – and I think Republicans understand their differences on these issues aren’t big enough to warrant letting the failing ObamaCare stand.

We won’t forget the GOP No List in 2018

May 5, 2017 — Herman Cain

Everyone knew House Democrats weren’t going to vote for the American Health Care Act. It repeals one of the biggest pieces of socialism ever passed in this country, and Democrats love socialism. So it was understood that all the yes votes, of which there were 217, would have to come from Republicans.

What doesn’t make sense is why 20 Republicans voted no, and because of that, I am not going to forget these 20 or let them off the hook.

Three new liberal tactics designed to stop you from hearing conservative arguments

May 1, 2017 — Herman Cain

We are all too familiar with the liberals’ S.I.N. tactics (shift the subject, ignore the facts, and name-call) to deny people the opportunity to hear an opposing point of view. They have now increased the frequency of three other blatant tactics to prevent people from hearing conservative truths.

“Shout them down!”

“Shut them down!”

“Lie!”

Calling all patriots: The Trump tax plan needs your help

May 1, 2017 — Herman Cain

Last week the Trump Administration announced its tax reform proposal. It’s impressive and a major departure from the tax code mess we have today.

I believe it’s bold and will work to boost the economy without exploding the national debt. Remember, I have been studying tax reform proposals for decades. I served on the Kemp Commission for Economic Growth and Tax Reform in the early 1990s. I’m very familiar with, and supportive of, the Flat Tax, the Fair Tax and of course my own 9-9-9 plan.

Media pretty excited Trump had ‘no legislative achievements in first 100 days’

May 1, 2017 — Herman Cain

Just about every news story this past Friday mentioned it. It was the 100th day of Donald Trump’s presidency, and with the decision of House leaders not to hold a vote on the ObamaCare repeal/replace yet, the magic date passed without a major legislative achievement so far in the Trump presidency.

It was an awfully big media narrative for an item of such utter irrelevance. I told you last Sunday to pack your patience, and you’re going to need it when you’re getting pelted with storylines like this.

Trump Derangement Syndrome vs. Trump results

Apr 24, 2017 — Herman Cain

Nearly 100 days into the Trump Administration, you would think that the anti-anything-Trump movement would at least start to fade. Unfortunately, it has not. In fact, it has gotten worse.

Look at the staged protests at town hall meetings held by members of Congress during their two-week recess. Hundreds of people showed up to protest anything Trump, and the member of Congress for supporting President Trump. The member’s supporters probably thought it would be a walk in the park, since most of them approve of the direction in which President Trump and Congress are headed.

Pack your patience, folks? Health and tax reform are coming, but they’ll take time

Apr 23, 2017 — Herman Cain

I understand that after eight years of you-know-who, people are impatient about things getting done and problems being solved. Democrat policies did a lot of damage to this country, and the sooner we can fix the damage the better.

But take a step back. Donald Trump has been president for just over three months. We still don’t even have all his appointments confirmed. As much as the media obsesses over a president’s “first 100 days” for whatever reason, he was elected to serve four years. And the current session of Congress will be with us for two full years.

Trump’s pursuit of better results: Change the status quo

Apr 16, 2017 — Herman Cain

In Syria, his predecessor said the use of chemical weapons represented a “red line,” only to do nothing when Bashar Assad crossed the line. Donald Trump pounded a Syrian target with 59 Tomahawk missiles.

In North Korea, his predecessor threatened to do something if Kim Jong Un engaged in provocative behavior like nuclear missile testing, only to do nothing when Kim did it anyway. Donald Trump sent a Navy strike force to the Korean peninsula.
